Agree on the reviews....so may 5-stars given for what objectively are often 3 or at best 4 star shows...maybe having the "half" option would help...we'd probably see a lot more 4 1/2 star ratings than 5-stars and same down the line...which would be more accurate.

Note that most of the recent Dead and Further shows also get 5 stars. I've long since given up on stars for any indication as to how a show sounds and/or was played. I rely on folks like Cliff, LIA, Dr. Flashback, and others for pointing me in the right direction. Since Tell only points me to two shows, I pretty much tune him out.

Hey BD, what do you want to bet that there might be DSO shows that get higher ratings than the orignal Dead show?

Agreed, stars don't mean much to me either. Never an indicator for me. I've been around enough to know and be able to readily list the most legendary shows then after that I have my opinions on which years I think were their best. Even with that criteria I can get enjoyment from ALMOST any year if the conditions are right : )

AWESOME man. Too funny! 9-19-79 anyone?

Oh yeah, a couple of smart asses that can't count...there ain't no other way around it but for the fact that the number is perhaps twice, THRICE that measely amt. Why, even Rob can recount (get it?) that 6-14, 10-12 AND 12-29 get regular mention for 68, and if 4-5-69 doesn't have my mtn of the moon face all over it, it must be Arb's...throw in 6-7-70, 9-19-70, and of course...say it with me: "8-6 H2H!" (see? no yr necessary!) brings us to a whopping half dozen shows to keep track of...or may four score minus three score and smidge or two; how about 11 fumbles and INTs?

Manageable for my pea brain, but still a far cry from TWO you half wits...jeezzz, and hey, GROK buddy--I hope milk isn't coming out of your nose!
